The quality of the academic process was a tremendously great structured program i am a former student there and it was amazing how well the teachers and students could communicate it was a great success. the level of parent involvment was not to great but if they had something they wanted to share with the parents they would it was awsome. i would recommend this school but it is a school only for those who are in a lock up facility. other than that it is a great school. the teachers really were darling.
